for one-minute speeches. for what purpose does the gentleman from south carolina rise? mr. wilson: madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. wilson: and to revise and extend my remarks. madam speaker, at midnight tonight, our nation is scheduled to fall off the fiscal cliff because the augusta chronicle editorial of december 2 is correct. quote, it's that stubborn adherence to big spending that is powering the momentum toward the fiscal cliff. halting base spending is what's going to stop it. end of editorial. over the past year, house republicans have passed effective bipartisan legislation to prevent the entire fiscal cliff. unfortunately, these bills remain stalled in the senate graveyard. this fact makes it very clear that house republicans have addressed this issue and speaker john boehner is holding firm for fiscal responsibility. with only a few hours to go, it's my hope that the senate will accept one of our proposals and send legislation back to the house that will attempt to tackle out-of-control

this is taking some time. i believe justin true is here on behalf of president david chiu -- madam clerk, can you please call 10 and 11. >> item 10, ordinance amending the campaign governmental conduct code to require electronic filing of campaign statements. no. 11, updating conflict of interest code. >> my name is judson true, i am here on these two items which president chiu sponsored. would you like to take 11 first or any particular order? >> i think we're just going to have both items --. >> they were directly connected other than being updated to our campaign and governmental conduct code. the first one is the item that's very simple, very clear, state law, a measure sponsored by assembly man ammiano now allows us to forego requiring any paper filing for campaigns. as you can see it's a short quick clear sirpl item. i know it was a priority of the city. mr. sincori championed us at the local level and worked with mr. ammiano. they plan to implement it by next summer and would obviously not require any more filing of paper copies which makes imminent sense. the second item is a lengthy
that work. thank you, madam president. and i thank my colleagues. i yield the floor and note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: mr. mccain: i ask that further proceedings under the quorum call be suspended and that i be recognized to address the senate as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: one of the most overused quotes about this town is harry truman's observation years ago that if you want a friend in washington, go out and get a dog. i spent a good many years here now, and i suppose there is a little truth in that advice. some washington friendships can be a little like temporary alliances between nations that for a brief period of time have mutual interests or enemies, but not all friendships here are like that. not all of them. today i say a former fond farewell to a departing colleague whose friendship has been and will always be one of the greatest treasures of my life. my friend senator joe lieberman is retiring from the senate after 24 years
these commissions is the time. thank you, supervisors, have a great afternoon. >> hi, madam president, my name is rod sahad, commissioners, supervisors. my name is rad sahad, i am president of the asian commission. i am here to pay my respects to leroy king, i have known him and i've got in front of him so i first of all want to do that. secondly i want to say that not just the other community but asian indian community also supports commissioner king to be reappointed. we think he brings great wisdom and is fair and i'm delighted personally that he is on the board, on this new commission, the commission on community investment and infrastructure, if i got that right. i'm also here to support the nomination of mara rosales who i have known since 1985 when she was assistant city attorney. worked with her when we were trying to bring asian indians into the mlp program. enough has been said about her so i'm not going to say anything further. i am in support of all the members. >> thank you, mr. sahar, thank you for being here. >> madam supervisors, al norman, baby merchants, southeast commis
logistically how it would work to do this? >> yes, madam chair. it's my advice that the committee directs me to competitively bid these services. i am happy to at the end of awarding that contract, be able to take some further time and investigate the actual details around the independence issue, the chain of command and who the budget analyst would report to, how our office would interact, how they would interact with the members of the board, where exactly they would be housed here at the board of supervisors. you could also direct me to investigate other jurisdictional cities. los angeles, san diego, new york to look at how they are provided budget analyst services. so, i think it's from the comfort of actually having a contract that you could then further direct me to provide that information to the committee. >> okay. and if we were to go forward with an rfp and eventually that rfp would have to come back for approval, could we have it be flexible such that if there was a decision by this body at a later time to actually do a contract, any type of proposal we would be flexible enough to

, the ranking member mr. berman of california. >> thank you very much, madam share, for convening this hearing to continue our examination of how we should give our government officials serving around the world the necessary protection to carry out their jobs. first i would like to wish secretary clinton a speedy recovery and hope she gets some well-deserved rest. as she nears the end of her service as the secretary of state, i think it is inappropriate time to recognize the strong and steadfast leadership she has demonstrated over the past four years. among her achievements, she has the the problems of women and girls in the forefront and helped make their voices heard around the world. the secretary has brought needed attention to the danger of the repressive governments including the important emphasis on the internet freedom. she initiated the quadrennial diplomacy and development review to improve the work of our international affairs agencies coming and she has been a leading advocate for the use of smart power, which advances the role of diplomacy international alliances, multilateral i
on the intelligence committee for a long time, i do not have, madam president, the faintest idea of what anybody's talking about are respect to a dossier. so senator udall and i followed that up as well. we asked the director to clarify that statement. we asked -- and i quote -- "does the n.s.a. collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans?" so that, too, is a pretty straightforward question. the questions that senators have been asking about this are not, you know, real, you know, complicated. if you're asking whether the national security agency is addressing these privacy issues, i think it's one of the most basic questions you could ask. does the national security agency collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? and if the agency saw fit, they could simply answer that with a "yes" or "no." instead, the director of the agency replied that while he appreciated our desire to have responses to those questions on the public record, there would not be a public response forthcoming. so to go over the exchange again, the dir
today. madam president, across the country, americans are lamenting that lack of progress in negotiations to avoid a massive tax increase on middle-class families -- and i really share that frustration. consider yesterday's failure, the disabilities convention at the hands of the tea party. this shouldn't have been a battle, but extreme elements of the republican party picked a fight where there was nothing to fight about. 38 republicans voted against the convention, including several who are on record supporting it, even cosponsors of it. this treaty already ratified by 125 countries would hold foreign nations to the same high standard of treatment that the united states already maintains for people of disabilities. and it would sative american citizens traveling and working abroad, and that's hundreds of thousands of people right now. the treaty has the support of veterans groups, disability groups from around the country, virtually all of them. it wouldn't cost the taxpayers a single penny. it wouldn't require any changes to existing united states law, and the issue is
, supervisor wiener and then supervisor farrell. >> thank you, madam chair. again, thank you to both candidates. i as i did two weeks ago or three weeks ago, whenever the last meeting was, support mr. wolff and am proud to join supervisor cohen in that support. i also know that rebecca rolf, executive director of the lgbt center which provides services to low income people, was here but due to the length of the last item had to leave and i know she feels strongly about this and i agree with her. i think mr. wolff would provide an excellent perspective on the market-octavia cac as i mentioned, i work with the cac frequently and i think he would bring a terrific perspective. i also think the lgbt center, having the center directly connected into the cac makes a lot of sense as we have more development in that part of market street the lgbt center is going it play a more and more significant role in the community so i think it makes sense to have someone from the center on there, which is why i was excited when mr. wolff applied. i think he does work with low income people, the center certainl
to the budget analyst report. >> madam chair, supervisor avalos, as shown on page 5 of our report, table 4, the proposed not to exceed amount of 18.7 million includes a 12% contingency of over $2 million which was calculated using the total actual as well as proposed contract expenditures of 16,700,000, the six year term from july 1st, 2008, to june 30, 2014. so, that includes 9.4 million which has already been expended on the contract, and clearly that should not be included in the contingency calculation. a 12% contingency should be calculated on the proposed expenditures for fiscal year 12-13 and 13-14 of 7,2 92,0 48, not on the prior actual expenditures. so, that would result in a contingency amount of 8,075,092 rather than [speaker not understood]. that contingency they calculated would equal 27.5% of the proposed 12-13 -- 12-13 and 13-14 expenditures. a 12% contingency would result in a total reduction of a million 128,94 2. so, our recommendation, supervisors, on page 7 of our report, we recommend that you amendedth proposed resolution to reduce the ton exceed contract amount by a m
